Rescue & Recovery from Confined Spaces inc. High Risk (5 days)

This course combines the Level 2 and Level 3 Awards into one week. The Level 2 Award covers how to work safely in high risk confined spaces when a specified risk cannot be eliminated or controlled to an acceptable level, and when respiratory protection (breathing apparatus) is required. Candidates will experience an environment containing one or more of the specified risks (fire / explosion; loss of consciousness from an increase in body temperature; loss of consciousness or asphyxiation from gas, fume, vapour or lack of oxygen; drowning from an increase in the level of liquid and asphyxiation of any person from free flowing solid). Entry to the confined space may involve complex entry procedures. It will entail the use of breathing apparatus (RPE).

This course also covers how to be a member of a team for rescue and recovery of casualties from confined spaces should an emergency arise. It will entail the use of breathing apparatus (RPE).
